Oigen foundry was established in 1852. Utilizing traditional Nambu Tekki from Japan's Iwate prefecture. Nambu tekki ironware crafting stems from over 400 years ago and still to this day is produced in the same traditional way. Nambu tekki was also the very first artifact to be recognized as Japan's "Traditional artifact." Oigen foundry uses 75% recycled materials to make their cast iron cookware.
